A great place to check for alternative energy incentives would be at the Department of Energy’s site called Database of State Incentives for Renewable and Efficiency or DSIRE. This site lists the state and federal tax incentives for each state to promote renewable energy.


Before you install that alternative energy resource on your home such as solar power, wind power or geothermal, you need to make your home energy efficient.  In my book entitled Energy Efficient Homes Explained, I teach homeowners like yourself tips and tricks you can do to become energy efficient. The more efficient your home is, the less you will spend on alternative energy.
